Faculty in the Department of Environmental Science train graduate students in Environmental Health through the Institute of Biomedical Studies.

The Institute of Biomedical Studies at Baylor University offers a Masters of Science (M.S.) and a Doctors of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree with emphasis in Environmental Health Science.

These interdisciplinary programs involve faculty from the departments of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Environmental Science, Human Health and Performance, Philosophy, and Psychology and Neuroscience in Waco, and from the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, and the Mary Crowley Medical Research Center in Dallas.

Students typically begin the program with a customized didactic program on the the Waco campus. After rotating through several laboratories, in order to explore the variety of research opportunities, the student then selects a faculty member to supervise their research. Research projects may be in areas such as, Virology, Immunology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, and Bioengineering.

Students participating in the degree programs are customarily supported with competitive stipends as Teaching or Research Assistants.
